    IBM Community's Virtual User Group Day is right around the corner!
    I'm Rebecca Hansen, Offering Manager, Planning Analytics, IBM, and I will be leading a session on May 19, from 11:30-12:00pm ET: 
    ______________________
    IBM Planning Analytics for Excel 2020   
    In this session, the IBM Planning Analytics for Excel team will share recent and new features and capabilities for the product in 2020, including a demonstration of the new reporting mode, Dynamic Quick Reports (DQR's). This new reporting mode will contain the best parts of both Dynamic Reports and Quick Reports such as Dynamic Report style formatting, dynamic row and column sets, stateful expansion toggling, and support for new hierarchy aware formulas. 
    ______________________
    Please share any thoughts or questions here in the thread, and we'll make sure this is available to you after the event so you can watch the replay and share your questions directly with me. In the meantime, would love to hear a little bit about yourself and what you'd like to get out of our User Group event. Drop a line in the thread below!

    Hello Rebecca. Any chance that the PAX product has been fixed for use with Cognos Analytics BI? The required 'refresh all' to get the PAX - Excel product to return accurate data from Cognos Analytics is still a pain.

    Hi Scott!

    Refresh activity improvements for CA formula-based (custom reports) are still very much in progress.  It is unfortunate that it is taking a bit longer than any of us would have liked to deliver this capability. I can say that it is identified as an extremely important matter, and that we are on-track to deliver it very soon.  Please stay engaged with us, and we'll be sure you are the first to know when it is available!

    Regards,
